To find peer reviewed articles on occupational therapy and deafness within the OT literature, begin at the OT libguide. Click on the Articles tab. Choose CINAHL Plus from the list of databases. You will need your Brenau user name (the part of your email address before the @) and your student ID number (the one you use to log into CampusWeb, not the password ending in 1!). Once in CINAHL Plus with Full Text, search "occupational therapy" AND deafness. Include the quotation marks to help focus your search. Scroll down and click the peer reviewed box on the left side of the page. Then click search. The results will include several articles from AJOT and BJOT, both core OT journals.
Neither AJOT nor BJOT are readily available in full text. To get the article, take the citation to the front desk of the library and ask the student to help you find the print journal. Our print copies of AJOT go back dozens of years. The print copies of BJOT go back to 1988.
To get information from journals outside OT, take "occupational therapy" AND out of the search box and search deafness. This will yield over 3,000 peer reviewed articles from outside of the OT literature.
If you still have problems, as for a librarian at the front desk. We're glad to help.
